County Attorney
'ecmct i
Jeff Brown (Republican): Brown
says that the county attorney posi
tion is “a misdemeanor prosecutorial
position, and those cases aren’t being
prosecuted. ”
Brown says he intends to “protect
the merchants” of the area by collect
ing on hot checks, and “protect the
citizens” by being willing to prose
cute on misdemeanors.
The other important issue in the
campaign is, Brown says, one of
management. The office has mis
handled cases in the past, Brown
says, and he will lend organization in
Beard says the issue in the campaign
is “strictly management in commis
sioner’s court for the ‘80s.”
“We need good management to
maximize the effects of our taxpaying
dollars,” he says. The commissioner
should cooperate with both cities to
eliminate duplication of services.
Madison also said his educational
background will help him. He has a
master’s degree in business admin
istration with a minor in economics,
he says, including nine hours in
business law.

Kent Caperton (Democrat):
Caperton, who defeated incumbent
William T. Moore in the May 3
Democratic primary, says that “edu
cation would be his top priority.”
“Teachers need to get meaningful
pay increases,” he says. There is
enough money in the budget to
handle such increases, Caperton
says; the key is to see that the
money is spent.
Concerning higher education, the
Permanent University Fund should
be continued, Caperton said,
although schools outside the Univer
sity ofTexas and Texas A&M systems
should be included.
The PUF is the proceeds from
leases and royalties of approximately
2.1 million acres of land. The PUF
functions as an endowment, which
means that the money which goes
into it is never actually spent.
Money from the PUF can be in
vested, though, and income arising
from investments is known as the
Available University Fund. The Uni
versity ofTexas System Board of Re
gents gets two-thirds of the money
from that fund, and one-third goes to
the Texas A&M University System
Board of Regents. These are the only
two universities which benefit from
the fund.
Caperton has said that other state
universities should also be provided
for in some way.
Caperton has said the need for
swift administration of justice needs
to be rebalanced with the rights of
the accused. The balance has been
distorted, so that too much weight is
given to the latter, Caperton says.
But Caperton does not support the
governor’s proposal for the use of
electronic surveillance by state law
enforcement officials.
“If we could be sure that it would
only be used on criminals, there
would be no problems,” Caperton
John Barron Jr. (Democrat):
Answering charges of mismanage
ment by his opponent, incumbent
Barron has said that he has done the
best job possible with his limited
Barron says he will do something
to remedy his problem of limited
staff if re-elected. He is the only pro
secutor in the office, and he has two
secretaries. He has said that he
needs two assistant prosecutors and
two more secretaries.
Paul Madison (Republican): There
is a problem in this area with hot
checks, Madison says, and that prob
lem is the focal point of this constable
“The old ways of handling this
problem are no longer valid,” Madi
son says. One of the reasons he is
qualified to come up with new solu
tions is his work with the state com
ptroller’s office, Madison says,
where he helped come up with “in
novative changes” in the way that
office handles business.
Richard Fronterhouse (Demo
crat): Fronterhouse also says that the
ability to deal with hot checks is the
most important qualification for this
Fronterhouse says that he won the
primary, defeating Dick Munday, by
concentrating on that issue, and it
has continued to be his focus. Mer
chants in this area must get restitu
tion, he said.
He will bring 16 years experience
as a police officer to the job, Fronter
house says, as well as experience on
the other side of the problem, which
he got as a manager of a grocery
E.W. Sayers (Democrat): Sayers,
who has been the Pet. 7 constable for
12 years, says the important issue is
the ability to meet what he calls the
“primary duties of a constable.”
These include serving papers, en
forcing the laws, and being prepared
to “assist all the people,” he says.
The constable must be on call 24
hours a day, Sayers said.
Winfred Pittman (Republican):
Pittman says he is running on his
experience in law enforcement. Pitt
man has taken 600 hours of law en
forcement training, he says, and has
been a police officer for 10 years. He
says he will bring a professional
approach to the duties of constable.

the incumbent in this race, has res

Texas lawyers endorsed Judge
Garwood by 82%. He won local judicial
preference polls by 86% in Dallas, 86%
in Houston and 80% in Fort Worth.
Judge Garwood is the choice of so
many because he’s fair-minded, non

superior training.

experience in private civil law practice.
He served with the Judge Advocate
General’s Corps, U.S. Army, and was
first in his class every year at The

“The appointment of Will
Garwood to the Texas Supreme
Court sounds like a chapter of
Texas history repeating itself The
Garwoods have a long record in
the judiciary. Will Garwood’s
grandfather, Hiram Garwood,
was county judge of Bastrop
County in 1888 and at one
time president of the Texas Bar
Association. W. St. John Garwood,
son of the county judge and father
of the new associate justice, was
the first Houstonian to he named
to the Texas Supreme Court in 80
years... This three-generation
record of public service is in the
finest Texas tradition’
“Garwood’s legal credentials are,
to put it modestly, magnificent. ”
Look for the name Garwood on the ballot. It’s worth the effort.
